Well, the teas have been selected, and that pie pumpkin has stuck around to be part of the mood setting layout. He’s joined by a large acorn squash, some fall foliage, a vase of mums, a glowing candle and, naturally, me to do the tea steeping honors. Don’t be scared by those shadows from the candlelight. They’re not goblins. Honest!
A cute touch, by the way, is using a teapot shaped teabag rest as a candleholder. And that little votive candle is pumpkin scented. Is that overdoing it a bit? Maybe.
Well, you’ve seen the process of getting to this point. Now all that remains is to steep the teas and enjoy! For now, that squash and the pie pumpkin are safe from our appetites. I don’t think that will last long, though!
